United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration officials cited a law passed in March this year, rejected the Chinese scientists in California next month to participate in an Ames Research Center (Ames) meeting application, the Act prohibits any person entering China NASA building(http://www(News News

The law is a U.S. Congressman Frank Wolf (Frank Wolf) initiated an aggressive move part of Wolf is chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, authority in NASA over the surface to anti-spyware legislation refused expatriates into NASA's amenities.

However, the ban angered many U.S. scientists who said they lab Chinese students and researchers targeted discrimination by the growing number of scientists refused to participate in the meeting and join the ranks of protest, some well-known scholars to an individual or research team nominal exit the meeting.

The conference is an international and U.S. Kepler space telescope organized research projects, the project is mainly looking for signs of planets outside the solar system, specialized in this field for scientists, this conference is a major event on the academic calendar .

Alan Persia (Alan Boss) is one of the sponsors of this meeting, he refused to talk about the developments, but said: 'This is not scientific events is unfortunate political issue.'

UC Berkeley professor of astronomy Geoff Marcy (Geoff Marcy), said that this ban was 'totally shameful and immoral.' He was of extraterrestrial planets or planets outside our solar system has made an outstanding contribution is expected to win Nobel Prize.

In a message to the meeting organizer, the Marci said: 'For my conscience, I can not attend a meeting of this discriminatory, the meeting mainly discussed in trillions of miles away planets, without involving the so-called national security. '

He told the Guardian << >> Reporter: 'The United States will be used solely for scientific research scientists exclude specific countries, it is totally immoral.'s Behavior unacceptable violation of conscience, which is the bottom line.'

Yale University professor of astronomy Dai Bula Fisher (Debra Fischer) said that when her lab China Postdoctoral Ji (sound) refused to participate in the meeting, she really understands the ban exists.
